      Biography:
      "Richard M. Lowell was born in Abbott, Piscataquis county, Maine, Dec. 2, 1828. He came to Minnesota in 1851, and on the day of his arrival went with a batteau containing provisions from St. Anthony to meet the log drivers on Rum river. He was married Sept. 26, 1853 to Sophronia M. Smith, and the next spring took up his residence upon a farm in what is now the town of Champlin, where he lived eight years. He then moved to Anoka, where he engaged in lumbering and carpenter work until 1897, when he returned to Champlin, where he lived until his death May 9, 1901. Of three children only one daughter, Mary, is still living. For the past twelve years Mrs. Lowell has been engaged in lecturing for Spirtualist organizations in several western states, and her local work for the past four years has been for the Band of Peace, Minneapolis. -History of Anoka County by Albert M.
